10 Simple rules for living my life

This has been borrowed from another blogger. "north does not mean up", she simply identifies herself as kristina and I find her entries rather inspiring and wanted to pass it on to anyone else that reads my blog.
This is from The Complete Life’s Little Instruction Book. How many of these can you say you honestly accomplish? Stop judging others. Look at yourself. Are you doing all of these 10 things every day? You may find you are better at some than others. Do your bit – but don’t expect these of others. It’s not your place. Change yourself, change the world.

1. Do battle against prejudice and discrimination wherever you find it.
2. Be romantic.
3. Let people know what you stand for and what you won’t stand for.
4. Be insatiably curious. Ask “why” a lot.
5. Measure people by the size of their hearts, not the size of their bank accounts.
6. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
7. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes. Learn from them and move on.
8. Keep your promises.
9. Seek out the good in people.
10. Take good care of those you love.

“Sometimes I lie awake at night and I ask, ‘Is life a multiple choice test or is it a true or false test?’… Then a voice comes to me out of the dark and says, ‘We hate to tell you this, but life is a thousand word essay.’” — Charles M. Schultz
